Strade Bianche: "Finalmente un italiano!"
"I've always thought this race suited me," said Moser. "I like selective races because I know I'm competitive when it starts to hurt. On the dirt roads, it's all down to yourself and what you have in your legs. You can’t worry about tactics too much in this race. I went because it was the right thing to do. I got a gap, looked back and then went for it. Me and my uncle are different kinds of riders but I suppose we're similar in lots of ways too, especially in how we race."
